Country rock band Swamp da Wamp is proud to announce the addition of drummer Mark Hill. After a long and arduous search, it was a no-brainer when Hill stopped in to jam with the band. Hill was the best fit and had the best groove with the current band members. Inviting him in was as the title cut of Swamp da Wamp's new CD says "That Easy.”
Mark Hill was born and remains a Charlotte, North Carolina native. Hill started playing piano at the young age of 4 years old. He was taught by his grandmother who was an accomplished teacher in the Charlotte area. Hill became interested in the drums and drumming when he was only 7 years old. He played his first live show when he was 10 years of age.
This natural drummer had his first recording session at the tender age of 11 and formed his first band when he was only 13 years old. He performed locally with his band until he graduated high school. He went out on the road as a touring musician shortly thereafter.
Hill is not just a drummer, he is a proficient and talented producer and singer/songwriter. He is also proficient on the piano, guitar and bass. He could be a one man band if there were 4 of him.
Through the years Hill has been the founder of several very successful regional bands and has played on countless recordings. Hill has won awards such as ‘Rock Band of the Year and Best New Rock Band of the Year,’ regional awards.
Hill is a passionate player, a hard hitting rock drummer with strong vocal abilities. Hill loves being an entertainer and truly knows the worth of the fans and treats them with kindness and respect. Hills favorite saying when out gigging and having a good time is: "It’s all about the fans!"
When Hill is not playing music he is riding motorcycles, driving or checking out hot rods, watching sports and hanging out in the great outdoors. Hill also owns a grading business but his first love is music. Hill’s passion for music shines with every beat, and he loves driving a good band with solid tasteful drumming.
Hill now joins the Swamp da Wamp band who has shared billing with rock legends like Alice Cooper, ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, .38 Special, Foreigner, Paul Rogers, Blue Oyster Cult, Shooter Jennings, The Outlaws, and The Marshall Tucker Band and country greats like Craig Morgan, Toby Keith, Craig Wayne Boyd and countless others.
Swamp da Wamp has performed on five music-themed cruises, including all three of the world famous Rock Legends Cruises. They’ve won the prestigious title “Best Rock Band 2013” at the famed Carolina Music Awards.
The CD is available now at iTunes and other online download music stores. Check out the current single, ‘My Drinking Song,’ at Vevo. Learn more about Swamp da Wamp by visiting their website and liking them on Facebook.
